      Over the course of a week, I taste a bunch of wine, usually with friends, and almost always with my wife. Here are some of the wines we tasted this last week that stood out: 2012 Maison Bouachon Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Tiare du Pape Blanc: Retail $45.

It doesn't have Musar's volatility nor do I have to look at my soles to see if I've stepped in something canine though there is a slight stink to it, but otherwise the aromas of ripe but savoury, sunny fruit are similar…

  • Wine Reviews: Rhone Grab Bag

    … It was Rhone wines that gave me the wine bug, and years later I’m still enthralled. The diversity of grapes, terroirs and winemaking styles is enough to keep even the nerdiest oenophile busy. In this report, we’re focusing on some wines from both the Northern and Southern Rhone regions. These wines were received as trade samples and tasted…
